2024 Charles Schwab Challenge Recap

Fort Worth, Texas – Davis Riley laps the field en route to his first solo PGA Tour victory.  The University of Alabama star is already making a name for himself in only his third season as a PGA Tour member.

This week has been filled with news outside of just golf.  Scottie Scheffler continues to have issues with the charges from his odd arrest at the PGA Championship last week.  We are also saddened to write that PGA Tour winner Grayson Murray took his own life on Friday after withdrawing from the tournament.  Our thoughts are with his family and friends.

As for the golf, it was a wire to wire victory but it wasn’t easy for the first time solo winner.  World number one Scottie Scheffler put quite some pressure on Davis all week posting scores of 72, 65, 63, and 71.  Scottie birdied two of his final six holes but he still came up five strokes short.  2023 Travelers Championship winner Keegan Bradley also made some noise posting a final round 67 which although was the second lowest score of the day, still came up five shy of the leader in Riley.  Collin Morikawa continues his strong stretch of golf with a solo fourth finish.

Despite the strong names at the top of the leaderboard, nothing seemed to phase Davis Riley this week.  He started by beating the field with a pair of 66s and a 64 with a few shot cushion going into Sunday.  He faltered a bit with two bogeys in his first five holes in his final round but he fought back and birdied nine, 11, and 17.  He didn’t even need that good of a performance considering he had such a large lead.  Shooting a final round of even par, he lifted his own trophy as a solo winner on the PGA Tour for the first time.

Next week the PGA Tour heads North of the border for the RBC Canadien Open where Nick Taylor is the defending champion.
